Topic tags/keywords: used lumber recycled lumber decking materials deeck lumber

I am looking for used/recycled decking materials in NJ. I’d like to build my wife a nice outdoor space to enjoy and with the budgets being tight I thought that if I can find the materials in good reusable condition it wouls save me some $$. I’d even be willing to disassemble a deck or two and take the materials in trade. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
John

John;

Go to www.craigslist.com and click on New Jersey in the states column. Then select a city near you. Look under the catagory “free” in the “for sale” column. I see decking materials listed all the time on there. Quite often it will be listed as firewood or scrap wood. You can also do a search in craigslist using a “wood” as a keyword. Good Luck!

Try freecycle.org, too. It works sort of like craigslist but I think you need to get a yahoo email address to use it.

Have your say...
